DISCRIPTION

Gorda Vista has been built and furnished to high specifications. Construction was recently finished in August 2012. The villa has been designed to be the ideal vacation property, which makes the most of its beautiful location. It encompasses this with the concept of outdoor living.

The property is private and has a gated entrance. It is secluded and located on the mountainside surrounded by forested jungle and wildlife. It is at an altitude of 564ft above sea level with cooling breezes off the ocean and mountains. It is ideal for a family vacation, a couple for a honeymoon, romantic get away or an adventure vacation.

The entire ground floor has been cleverly designed to integrate the pool, deck, covered terrace, kitchen and lounge into one outdoor living space. It can be easily changed into separate outdoor and indoor spaces by simply closing the large glazed doors that are on two sides of the lounge wall.

The top floor has two bedrooms both with air-conditioning, on suite bathrooms and ocean view verandas. The master bedroom has a king size bed and large on suite bathroom with a sandstone walk in shower big enough for two. The second bedroom can be used for children or a couple, as it has two single beds that can be pushed together to make one king-size bed. There is also a comfortable queen-size convertible bed in the lounge.

The 45-foot lap pool with infinity edge overlooks Dominicalito Beach. It has a wider area adjacent to the house with two tiled sunken chairs and a raised table to relax in the pool water whilst sipping your cocktails and watching the sunset into the ocean.

Gorda Vista stands on a 5 acres of private tiered estate with a lower landscaped area with walking paths winding round over 100 different varieties of well tendered tropical plants, herbs and fruit trees which include Papayas, Star Fruit, Mangos, Lemons, Avocados, Mandarins, Pineapples, Oranges, Bananas, Plantains, Cashews, etc. These trees and plants are presently still young and being nurtured but if you find any herbs or fruit ready you are welcome to eat them.

The location of the property will make your vacation easy as the local stores, banks, restaurants and amenities are only a 15-minute drive away. There are a great variety of tours, activities and adventures for all ages and levels of excitement. They are all just a short drive away and can be booked and arranged by us.

Bed linen and towels for both bathroom and pool provided.

The villa is easy to reach with only a scenic 125 miles or 201 km drive from San Jose international airport (Juan Santamaria) on the newly constructed highways.

• You will need to rent a 4x4 vehicle to access the property and to enjoy the southern Pacific zone of Costa Rica

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

The house is stunning - views, privacy and comfort. It had everything we needed and everything worked. We spent many hours just relaxing at the house. The location requires a four wheel drive vehicle, but they are easy to come by at Costa Rican car rental agencies. Dominical is a short drive and offers a great beach with surfing lessons, restaurants, bars and shops. Dominicalito is closer and is much smaller and more quiet. We liked both. The nearby freshwater swimming hole was a hit with the kids and adults - we made several visits. Neil was very helpful. We hope to return.

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't image staying anywhere but Gorda Vista . 17 months from our 1st stay . Landscaping is maturing beautifully . New BQ area by pool is amazing . Need to keep on eye on your food ,you will be distracted by views of Playa Dominicalito & sunsets. Neil the property manger is like having your own concierge . Weather you choose to relax or explore Costa Rica you can't beat the location . Cooks will have everything you need in the Kitchen. Take advantage of fresh Fruits & Vegetables @ San Isdidro farmers market . Pick up fresh seafood @ La Macha or enjoy their restaurant . Neil & Steve booked most of our tours . You need to book ahead of time during high season . Enjoy guided day & nite tours @ Hacienda Baru . Boat tours of Damas Mangroves .Surfing lesson was tough , but next year I will get up on the Long Board . Great Inshore fishing & bonus of Whale watching . Remember it's fishing not catching . Capt George & 1st mate Allen will make it a great day . We were lucky caught 5 types of fish . 1 Hr north is Manuel Antonio National Park . Just south is Ballena National Park . Go during low tide to walk on the famous Whale's Tail beach . For the beautiful painted Masks you see everywhere . An easy 1 hr 45 min drive south go see the Boruca native indian people @ their village. Our your way back stop @ Citrus Restaurant in Ojochal 1 of the best restaurants on the Pacific coast .Neil can give you all the info you need 4 your dream vacation .

Much thanks to all the great people of Costa Rica.

Pura Vida !!!!!!

All you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end the Gorda Vista experience was exceptional, making for our best family holiday yet. there is no end of things to do within easy reach of the villa, and we enjoyed the rustic charm of Dominical and it's people. The house itself was without fault and our young daughters spent every available moment in the pool - in fact running from the car straight in to he pool was a frequent occurrence. Neil and Steve were excellent. Best restaurant was Por Que No, and our girls loved the horseback ride to the Falls (Dad not so much) and the zip-lining at Osa. We took the 'long way' back through the mountains which was worth the effort as well.

Costa Rica will always been fond in our memories. Thanks for making this beautiful villa available.

Luxury Jungle Living

  • 5 of 5

This property provides a close up jungle experience with all of the daily comforts one is used to. The privacy is exceptional. Having a 40 foot lap pool to yourself along with the outdoor shower is a wonderful thing! Sightings of monkeys, butterflies, humming birds, parrots and listening to the sounds of the jungle are an experience I will never forget. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, and the indoor-outdoor living is convenient. The kitchen is huge and a great place to cook. We had one day of rain and had plenty of room to hang out without feeling cramped. The location is a great base to explore from but my favourite days were the ones we stayed on the property to enjoy it. I would highly recommend this vacation rental to couples and families. The property has wifi, and my cell phone from Canada had coverage everywhere I travelled in the Dominical area including this property.

Gorda Vista--Breathtakingly Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Gorda Vista...Amazing villa in the middle of the jungle! Neil and Steve were very helpful and attentive before and during our stay. The villa was comfortable and the pool area was magnificent! We enjoyed many a beautiful sunset from the pool! We loved the privacy and enjoyed seeing the white faced monkeys, toucans and other wildlife! We spent a day at Manuel Antonio National Park and saw a Sloth and Howler Monkey, among other things! We ate at PorQueNo Oceanside restaurant several times--was very good! Would definitely recommend Gorda Vista to friends and family and look forward to a return visit!
